Trump has destroyed our democracy.

"We may have our differences, but we do well in times like these to remember that everyone who serves in our nation's capital is here, because. above all, they love our country", Trump said during remarks in the Diplomatic Reception Room at the White House.

Court records show Hodgkinson's legal trouble started in the 1990s. The vast majority of the cases were traffic violations and almost all of them were later dismissed.

Hodgkinson's Facebook posts were frequently critical of Trump. He did not dispute reports - and the senator's confirmation in a statement - that Hodgkinson had been a volunteer.

Charles Orear, 50, a restaurant manager from St. Louis, said in an interview Wednesday that he became friendly with Hodgkinson during their work together in Iowa on Sanders's campaign.

"I just want to let people know he wasn't evil, that he was, I guess, exhausted of some of the politics going on", Walsh said. "Totally out of the blue" is how he described the unexpected violence.

Harlan Hill, a New York-based political consultant and Trump supporter, said no one should blame Sanders personally.

The fervent Bernie Sanders support also shared many articles and images in support of the defeated Democratic presidential hopeful.

"He was this union tradesman, pretty stocky, and we stayed up talking politics", Orear told The Post. "He was more on the really progressive side of things".

Sen. Heller Has Serious Concerns About GOP Bill
If you are a 27-year-old person who makes $70,000 a year and has no illness, this is a good bill for you. Thank you so much. "I'm announcing today that in this form, I will not support it", Heller said Friday.

In March, Hodgkinson met with sheriff deputies in IL after they received calls that he had fired 50 shots on his property.

James Hodgkinson sold all of his belongings before going to Washington, according to his wife.

Former Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille, who chatted with Hodgkinson at the gym, said he assumed the man was homeless because he wore pretty much the same outfit every day and carried a bag full of extra clothes. "I can't wrap my head around it", she said. All of the sudden, I heard a couple of shots.

"I've had enough", she said.

Hodgkinson also wrote a number of letters to the editor to the Belleville News-Democrat, attacking Republican policies and focusing in on tax reform and income inequality.

"The 99% are being pushed around and the 1% are just not giving a damn".

"I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice this morning is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign".

In the late 90s, another foster daughter living with Hodgkinson and his wife, Suzanne, had committed suicide at the age of 17 by dousing herself with gasoline.
